This piece is a page from a 16-page risograph zine titled “Hiding (숨다).” I created to encapsulate my first time travelling to Korea. A traditional Korean mask is used as a visual aid to represent how I felt hidden and out of touch with my Korean culture throughout my trip. I used drawing as a way of healing and reflecting on reconnecting with my Korean identity.
